The charity campaigner was killed yesterday in Clare and the motorcycle community made sure he was not alone for his journey home

The death of Aidan Lynam at a charity event for Down Syndrome has rightly been deemed a real tragedy. The father of three was described as a 'phenomenal person' by those he worked with at Down Syndrome Ireland and all day tributes have been paid to him as a man and a charity campaigner.

This evening, his body was transferred from Clare back to his home in Lucan and it was accompanied by hundreds of motorcyclists who turned put to pay their respects to the man who loved his bike.

Lynam died after the motorcycle he was travelling on collided with a car just outside Kilkee in Co Clare yesterday shortly before noon.

The Dubliner was participating in the annual 'Rev-Up4DSI' event, which he founded 10 years ago to raise money for Down Syndrome Ireland (DSI).

The 44-year-old will repose at Cunningham’s Funeral Home in Lucan on Tuesday afternoon. Requiem Mass will be held at St. Mary’s Church at 10am on Wednesday, followed by a burial in Esker Cemetery.
